Trip Itinerary

At 7:30 AM, you depart for Cai Lay (about 2 hour drive) where you collect your bicycles and enjoy a leisurely, two-hour bicycle ride on peaceful country lanes and quiet roads that pass through local villages and along canals. This offers you several stops on the route, seeing  seasonal fruits at the tropical plantations such as rambutan, durian, longan, jackfruit, etc., perhaps watching farmers harvesting peanuts, visiting a coconut candy factory, a puffed rice factory, stopping at a market to buy fruit, etc.. We have a great photo opportunity at Cai Be Catholic Church, built in 1929-1932, with its unique steeple atop. We board our boat for a cruise over the mighty Mekong river (about 1.5km wide), past waterfront villages and the Cai Be floating market, pausing for lunch of local specialties on Binh Hoa Phuoc island.


After lunch, we start a short cycling on small paths under the green canopy alongside water, mostly shared with just pedestrians, other local cyclists and scooters, to explore the orchards and daily life of farmers. Crossing Dinh Khao ferry, we are transferred to Cai Ngang where we start two hours riding on immense rice fields, through numerous rural riverside villages, visiting Khmer Pagoda en route. If time permitting, we have a climb up to Can Tho suspension bridge over the mighty Mekong river (Tonle Bassac - Hau Giang river), see panorama sunset view of the mekong. We continue cycling toward hotel in Can Tho or transfer by van.
